As of as of January 2016, the REC program has exceeded its target to enroll and assist 100,000 priority primary care providers (PPCPs) to demonstrate meaningful use (MU) of certified EHR technology (CEHRT). RECs support providers' adoption of CEHRT and richer functionality of MU, including: clinical quality reporting, e-prescribing, and medication reconciliation to improve patient care and successfully demonstrate the MU stage 1 criteria. While some providers had an EHR installed before REC assistance commenced, almost all providers required system upgrades or requested a full EHR replacement to implement CEHRT to reach MU. As of as of January 2016, 95 percent of REC-enrolled PPCPs (136,726 providers) have an EHR installed and are routinely using the technology, and over 78 percent of all REC-enrolled PPCPs (112,804 providers) had demonstrated MU of CEHRT.

Electronic Health Information Exchange Performance reported to the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, 2014

The data presented here reflect eligible hospital, Critical Access hospital, and eligible professional reporting on electronic exchange measures as defined for 2014, and indicate that significant progress must be made to reach a patient-centered, fully networked, integrated system of health and health care. When reviewing these data, it is important to consider them in the context of performance in 2014, since reporting requirements for the EHR Incentive Programs change in 2015. These still provide valid baseline data on levels of electronic exchange between providers and patients and other health care providers.

However, though the proportion of hospitals with the capability to allow patients to submit patient-generated data, such as blood glucose or weight, nearly tripled between 2013 and 2014, less than one-third of all hospitals have that capability.
